Edwardian Style Picnic Basket to Enhance Your Visit to the Costumes of Downton Abbey on Exhibit at Winterthur Museum

Winterthur has the distinction of offering the only United States exhibition of the costumes of Downton Abbey.  Check our Events Calendar for all the information on this most marvelous exhibition.  Why not enjoy the exhibition in the style of the Crawleys by enjoying an Edwardian inspired picnic prepared by Hamanassett Bed & Breakfast? Each basket is for two people and will offer the following:  your choice of one main entree (rosemary roasted Cornish game hen, roast beef sandwich with creamy horseradish sauce, or vegetarian Cornish pasties) along with appropriate sides, a small relish platter, chips, and a dessert.  Also choose a beverage from ice tea, lemonade, or bottled water.  Of course we’ll also pack a blanket and appropriate utensils.

Winterthur is only 20-25 minutes from Hamanassett Bed & Breakfast and offers many beautiful places for outdoor dining such as Sycamore Hill and along Clenny Run, which offers lovely vistas and the sound of the burbling brook.  They welcome you to walk on the grass and enjoy your picnic under the shade of one of their stately trees from 10 AM to dusk.  If the weather is too cold to dine outside, we’ll deliver your basket to your room. The cost of the picnic for two people is $55.00 plus 6% tax.  We do need 48 hours’ notice.

Advance purchase of tickets is strongly recommended. Timed tickets are required for this exhibition.
